David Eric Grohl is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and film director. He is known for being the longest-serving drummer for the rock band Nirvana and the founder of Foo Fighters. When Nirvana disbanded following the suicide of its frontman Kurt Cobain, he became the founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and primary songwriter of the rock band Foo Fighters. Grohl is also the drummer and co-founder of the rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, and wrote the music and performed all the instruments for his short-lived side projects Late! and Probot. He has also recorded and toured with Queens of the Stone Age. At age 17, Grohl joined Washington D.C.-area favorites Scream to fill the vacancy left by the departure of drummer Kent Stax. He joined Nirvana soon after Scream's unexpected disbandment. Upon its release, Nirvana's second album and the first to feature Grohl, Nevermind, exceeded all expectations and became a worldwide commercial success.
